Meghan McCain Does 'Playboy': Top 14 Quotes From Sex to Politics

meghan mccainOh Meghan McCain, you're so much fun. Meghan's interview in the April Playboy is out and she is feisty and hilarious as ever. The anything-but-dumb blond is mouthy in a way we love, and this interview is loaded with bon mots I'll be treasuring for a while.

In fact, I think I may have to adopt some of her one-liners for myself. Hey, I'm no Republican, but I can learn from anyone. Here are 14 fabulous quotes that show why Meghan is one Republican I will listen to.


Meghan on why we should listen to what she has to say about politics: "I’ve earned the right to be here and talk about it [politics], and I’m not scared to get down and dirty."

"Some guys out there just can’t handle a woman with a strong opinion. And the quickest way to cut down a woman is to talk about her appearance. Do I care? No." Yeah! Meghan sees the way she threatens some guys. And she's not going to let them intimidate her. Good for her!

Meghan has called the 2012 election cycle "the shitty sequel” to 2008. If I were a Republican I'd have to agree. Good thing I'm not, heh heh. 

Meghan has some wise advice for the kids of candidates when they go out on the campaign trail: "Get sleep, be nice and shut up." She learned this the hard way.

"Gay guys love me. It’s the big boobs and blonde hair." I think it's her liberal attitude toward homosexuality, too.

"But you know, showing a little cleavage can make a girl feel sexy too. Like Jessica Simpson says, if you got it, you should flaunt it once in a while." Wouldn't you love to see Meghan give Calista Gingrich or Karen Santorum a makeover? Just saying. 

Meghan on dating. Tip #1: Be funny. "If he can make me laugh, I don’t care if he looks like Zach Galifianakis; it’s an instant turn-on."

Tip #2: Skip the Google search. "Dating’s okay, but guys can be weird. They think if they Google you and talk about stuff you’ve said, they get to make out with you at the end of the first date." Oh that sounds horrible. Guys, why would you do that? Don't you know how to talk with girls?

Meghan definitely not talking about Romney: "Not to bring any particular politician into this discussion, but I always find it fascinating that the number one state per capita for downloading porn is Utah. All those pious Mormons and they’re drooling at their laptops all day." But she's not implying anything about Romney. Just so we're clear on that.

Meghan on paying her dues as an intern for Saturday Night Live: "I think everybody should have a crappy internship so they realize what a bitch it is getting other people’s shit work done."

Bristol Palin had a thing or two to say about Meghan in her tell-all book. Meghan feels for her and the harsh treatment she got from the media -- up to a point. "But once someone signs up for Dancing With the Stars, it’s hard to sympathize."

"Hell would freeze over before I would do a reality show."  

Meghan on her unlikely soul mate, Hunter S. Thompson -- and why they actually have more in common than you'd think: "Hunter and I would have been fast friends. He was on Late Night With Conan O’Brien once and he was drinking whiskey and shooting guns. I appreciate both those things. We would have understood each other."

And finally my favorite quote: "I'm strictly dickly." Ha, awesome way to put that. But let's get it in context. "I’m not a lesbian, if that’s what you’re asking. I’d be the first person to tell the world I was gay. I’m not private about anything. I think you should live how you should live. But I’m strictly dickly. I can’t help it. I love sex and I love men."
